Farmville made Zynga so much money that they now can feel free to buy whatever they want. So, not too long ago, they decided to buy OMGPop, the creators of Draw Something. OMGPop got a cool $200 million for the deal, but critics fear that this may have been a bad move for Zynga since Draw Something appears to be a bit of a one hit wonder like Billy Ray Cyrus (though he did create an offspring that was sold to Disney for billions of dollars). OMGPop has made over 40 games
with in the past 3 years, but it wasn’t until Draw Something came out that the company started getting any recognition.
However, there is a bright side to this. OMGPop has promised that they’ll soon be releasing extra features to Draw Something such as the ability to see one’s drawing history and a way to chat with your friends.
